The items on this week’s top picks list can be hard to buy because it’s often tricky to find the right fit and fabric. Be sure to browse the size and colour options, and feel free to recommend your own winning items in the comments section. 

1. Halogen Raw Edge Tank

If you’re after a simple woven shell top with a V-neckline, keep these on your radar for $49. There’s a cute V-neck in the back too. The sheer chiffon edging on the neckline and armholes is pretty and adds interest. Length is not too long, and the neckline not too low. A little dressier than a tee, and super breezy. Good for layering under cardigans and jackets too.

2. Eloquii Neoprene Pencil Skirt

Eloquii does a simple and versatile pencil skirt every season, and it’s a bestseller for good reason. The length is knee-covering, and the fabric substantial. The fit is body-con and stretchy, and moulds to the shape of your figure. Dress it up or down. Soft, comfy, crease-resistant, easy to pack, and between $60-$70. Comes in a short length too.

3. Strapless Bras

Summer is on our doorstep in the Northern hemisphere, and clothes that require strapless bras are coming out to play. If you’re looking for a strapless bra, these options are a good place to start. You’ll find lots of supportive styles across a range of cup sizes and band widths. I will be trying the Wacoal at some point.

4. Great Loafers

Loafers can be very hard to fit because they fall off your feet if the fits are a bad match for the shape of your feet. I know all too well how hard it is to find a good and comfortable fit for my own feet. But I love to wear loafers in the Spring and Summer, so I persevere until I find just the right pair. I add insoles to take up extra width and provide a more cushioning footbed. If you bat for Team Loafers, here’s a collection of loafers with great reviews. I’ve tried many of the simple and classic light-coloured styles. I committed to the Paul Greens Lil Flats and the Carvelas. Incidentally, Carvela is owned by British Luxury shoe brand Kurt Geiger, and designed by an all women team. Many of their shoes are made in Brazil.
